Good Morning All, Wonderful evening last night. Dinner out then "An Evening At The Theatre" with my friend. His church has some very talented members that presented the concert. The first half was Opera and I was amazed at both the singers and the acoustics in the church; the second half was show tunes. Beautiful concert!
CAT-Sugar needs a good grooming too; it's really a job! Plus, she has the kind of coat that it only lasts a day or two and then she's back to the shaggy dog look.
Lots to do today; busy week ahead. Hope to get tables, chairs, table cloths etc. over to my daughter's before the rain hits today. That way I only have to take food on Thursday. All is well here. Enjoy your Sunday everyone!

I may be slipping out quietly later to walk............

Good Morning All,
Social commitments are really challenging my routines and maintenance this week; but I do realize that is a nice problem to have and I'm up for the challenge. Nice dinners out the past two nights with family and another this evening with a friend. I check the menus online and have been able to order wisely but still eating a little more by the end of the day than usual. Most difficult is that it cuts into my activity time, hard to get in my usual fitness minutes. But, my streaks are still intact! :)
Busy week coming up and a lot of travel. Those of you in the path of artic weather take care!
Years ago our Thanksgivings were spent in Erie,PA with my mother in law. Classic scenario was a nice trip there, then the snow would start Thanksgiving afternoon and we'd be battling snow and bad roads the rest of the weekend. Sure don't miss the winters in the North! But, there were times the snow was fun too and a treat for my kids.
Jeri, I hope your dad continues to improve. Nursing home care can be good but does need to be monitored. My mom was in one for many years, Alzheimer's. She seemed happier and like she felt "safer" there. She'd become very fearful at home.
Will get in my walk and yoga today, winging it from there. My food choices are not as much a challenge for me now as making sure to fit in enough activity.
Stay safe and warm everyone.

Jeri it's good that your dad is getting better, shame he does not have a supportive spouse! At least he has you.
Marilyn I've seen the weather you're having on the news, take care hun...doesn't look a lot of fun and it's going to be bedlam when it melts. I fear flooding.
Lynette well done for keeping on track despite some annoying things happening and being busy.
Cat you could well be right about Jeri's dad, I recall the same situation with Pete's dad. Just did not want to be around Lilian!

Well it's raining (there's a surprise.....although that said the last couple of days have been good) and I wanted to finish in the garden. No matter. Might have a pamper day after my workout emoticon

Glad to see you back, LJ. Stay with us!
Marilyn, stay safe up there and enjoy yourselves.
Jeri, perhaps your father senses the negativity at his home and is happier at the nursing home. I hope he gets to feeling even better soon.
High winds and rain along with hours long power outage today. No walk. I did have to take the dogs to the groomer today and missed the power outage at home (okay with me) and it came back on before I returned home. The dogs are tired from the stress and I am tired from sitting there talking to the groomer.

surprised to read back and see how long since I've posted. Always enjoy reading about the activity of everyone. There's been lots of busy-ness for me, as well as a dead vehicle again, not to mention some computer hiccups.
The snow in Buffalo is unbelievable, except the photos prove it. Pray that flooding will not be next. Mother Nature is sure a wicked one these days, whether we blame it on global warming or whatever.
I'm managing to stay pretty steady with my weight but as I stay at home, I eat more. So I am trying to play some mind games and so far it is working. Have also been getting quite a few steps in, with the prompting of my Fitbit.

Hi Everybody!
We are taking a long weekend in the frozen north in Erie, PA. Not too far from Buffalo, NY which has had record-breaking snow accumulation. Last nite we went to a beautiful quaint inn in the country for dinner, but it started snowing and we had to drive thru a white out to get back to the hotel. Don't plan on doing that again soon.
Have a great weekend!

Good morning. I had no idea it was only 18 this morning. Brrrr. It will warm up nicely, though. My dad got transferred to the nursing home yesterday. He is looking much better. I hope he gets strong enough to go home, but I doubt he will. His wife doesn't want him there. She's a hag.

She woke up one morning and threw away all her excuses...

Good Morning All, Sunny here and our snow is gone but still chilly. Warmed to the 40's yesterday and we did get in a good walk; but had wind to battle. Not much will keep us in; heavy rain and ice. Changing gears from the garden to the house and tore into the kitchen yesterday. My oven is now really clean and the two worse cabinets put in order. The one under my stovetop actually needed a good scrubbing, new liner and paint on the back wall. Good job done. Just have to accept tackling a "part" of the job at a time. No longer can tackle the whole room. Have a good sized box of cookbooks that need new homes now. Good day yesterday! Heading into the holidays; will be eating out the next 3 evenings! Two, birthday dinners with my older grandkids and on Sat. dinner and a concert with a friend. Life is good. Stay warm everyone!

Joy I was lucky enough to get 4 hours gardening in yesterday plus a walk and some ST!!
Wonderful day, mostly outdoors and ...today..............not a chance, it's pelting down. Glad I used that window of opportunity. Hope you got your walk in?
Jeri good for you, rest up and recuperate hun, good that you're taking care of you!!
Cat next time you'll find it more rewarding.

Like I said a rotten day weatherwise! Hate being stuck inside, but it's an ideal day to catch up on phone calls!

Good for you JERI! Our bodies need recovery time; glad you're listening! Perhaps more than when we were younger---but there are a lot of younger bodies out there that wouldn't be able to keep up with you! Guaranteed!

Good morning. I don't usually wish to be younger, but today I would like to have a younger body -- one that can handle working full time, taking care of my family, handle the stress of an aging parent, and exercising like a beast. I'm declaring this a rest week. I'm not even going to pretend to set my alarm and then re-set it each morning.

Good Morning All, I love the way we all focus on activity; I believe that's really the key to long term maintainence. So much easier in warmer months! I did get out in the cold yesterday and walk; if I don't Sugar just sleeps all day! We both need to keep moving. Today will be easier; should warm to 40. Have a good day everyone!

Jeri I think as our eyes are so precious and the only set we get it's natural to be super anxious, I dread anything going wrong with mine. Although I've had brain surgery I'd have that again rather than eye surgery- it gives me the shudder to just think about it. I really hope the drops do the trick for you. And I hope your dad is soon better, lucky your daughter could get there and help.
Joy I have the garden in my sights again today, determined to get one section finished- it's been bugging me for days but like you it's been too flippin cold!
MN love your attitude :)
Cat good that you have some projects to keep you busy indoors from the cold.

MN, good attitude and way to live.
I heard Andrea Tantera say recently that 'nothing tastes as good as thin feels'. I keep listening to that over and over in my head.
Jeri, sorry about your father. Hope he gets better soon. Your daughter sounds like a good person.
Got in a good walk after lunch and worked on my sewing projects today. This cold weather is not for me.

Jeri, I love that poem about the seasons! And it is colder than blue blazes here! Much too cold for November! Have a meeting tonight, so probably won't get any cardio in - just trying to get up from my desk as often as possible to move around a bit. That might be the extent of my exercise for the day, although I did get up and do some arm/shoulder s/t before work.

Good Morning All? Darn! It's (&*)_U&* COLD out there! Chilly doesn't cover it! I'm so thankful it's sunny and calm; will bundle up and get out this afternoon. Got a good walk in yesterday but just couldn't make myself go out again to yoga last night.

JERI I understand your eye doctor anxiety; last time I went was the first time I went with a problem rather than just a vision exam; even with the numbing of my eyeball it felt like he was removing it from the socket! Will be harder if I have to do that again. I know quite a few people that have had the laser surgery with good results, just take one step at a time. I'm sorry about your dad but so glad it wasn't worse. Your daughter sounds like she would do well whatever she chose to do; quality gal!

No commitments today but plenty to do. Sugar doesn't want to go out; can't blame her! She doesn't have a litter box, will have to go out soon. Stay warm everyone.

Good morning!!! It's a chilly, chilly day outside. My mother used to always say:
"Spring has sprung, Fall has fell. Winter's here, and it's colder than blue blazes."

Yesterday my eye appt was crazy. I need laser surgery on my left eye to help my glaucoma, but I get a bad case of anxiety at the eye doctor. Even with a pre-appt valium yesterday, the doctor could not complete the exam. So they are going to try to bring my eye pressure down with some drops, and I'll go back on Jan 6th. If they can't get it down, they will have to put me completely to sleep in order to perform the surgery. I asked her if it will be like the scene from Final Destination where they prop my eye open and a machine falls down, and my eyeball will go rolling across the room, so I'll have to chase it down. Bwahahaha.

After I got back to work from my eye appt, my daughter called me and told me my dad had fallen down in his house. His wife had come home from her radiation treatment and found him on the floor. She couldn't get him up. My daughter rushed over there and took care of him until the ambulance arrived. She even laid on the floor with him. At one point my daughter had wanted to be a nurse. She is a certified nurse aid, with some college courses toward her nursing degree. Instead, she now is almost finished with her Master's Degree in Elementary Education. She needs to go back to nursing. She is a loving, caring person, who is extremely good at making patients feel better while administering care. I really appreciate her being there for him. He is fine. He doesn't eat or drink much, so he was very dehydrated. His white blood count is very elevated, but they couldn't get a urine sample even with a catheter due to his dehydration. They admitted him to the hospital. I'm glad it wasn't as bad as it could have been. Yesterday was a very trying day!! But today is a new day.

She woke up one morning and threw away all her excuses...

Feeling a little bit under the weather today so decided to use a sick day and relax. I've decided that to keep my motivated with exercise, I need to think about how much I would WANT to exercise if for some reason I was limited physically and wasn't able to. As for food, I will stay motivated to eat healthy so that in the event I am faced with a health setback, I'll be strong and healthy enough to fight it! In other words, focus on health a gain and not weight. I guess we are 50+ (and then some for some of us) so it's important to think about those things. Here's to new motivation to those of us who need it!

Hi all.
Yesterday was too busy and tiring for me to do more than grin. Shopping day always wears me out. Don't know why other than I do not like the crowds and all the attention to detail in looking at my food purchases.
Anyway, I'm up and at 'em today. Getting ready to walk the dogs in our 40 degree, cool breeze weather before heading out to bowling.
Joy, I am also struggling with busy vs activity this fall. This is new to me and one that is not welcome as the scale has inched up to where I need to make a concentrated effort to get it back down. I am even thinking of rejoining the gym so that I will be forced to deal with it.
Perhaps I need to join an activity team for awhile as I dropped all those when I hit maintenance a few years ago and was going to the gym. Ugh.
Have a wonderful day everyone.

Good Morning All, Jeri is right; it is a pretty morning. Everything snow covered but it's already melting off my drive and street. But, temps are dropping so if we get more could turn to ice. We'll see. No where I HAVE to be. Coloring a friends hair later this morning but will walk up to her house.
Weighed this morning .8# over my top goal range. Challenge of being more busy than active. DGD's album is done, I have more sewing to do on current projects. I really have to work at being "active" with this cold weather. I still get in about a 2 mile walk, hoop 20 minutes and do my morning abs/yoga routine; but it's not quite enough. I'll be fine, miss working in the yard. Go to yoga class 2x a week but I won't even start anything new at the gym until after the holidays.
Enjoy your week everyone.

Good morning. It's a beautiful snowy morning here. We were supposed to have 2-6", and then 1-2", and so far it's just a dusting. The trees look very pretty decorated with snow. I'm on my way to the glaucoma specialist. I went to the eye doctor last Wednesday, and she went all freaky and acted like my eyes were going to explode if I don't see the head glaucoma specialist quickly to have surgery on my left eye. I've been avoiding the eye doctor too long because I hate it. I seriously hate having my eyeballs poked and prodded. It sends me into panic, and it makes me want to vomit. So this morning I'm going to see the head eye doctor. She gave me a valium to take beforehand, so my husband is driving me.

She woke up one morning and threw away all her excuses...

I had an interesting walk yesterday in drizzle. I really miss the sun emoticon
But spoke to Vicki again yesterday and it now looks like they're over to us Christmas Day like last year and us over to them on the 26th. There place is still in a muddle from decorating and so it makes sense to spread out over here.

Didn't do much today. No snow today, but the wind came up and blew it around, so the highways were bad again today. Think it's going to be that way all winter! Will need to dig deep for motivation - guess it's time to bond with the treadmill again!

Good morning everyone. I hope you're keeping warm in your neck of the woods. It's been cooler here in Central FL...sweaters in the morning but much warmer mid-day. I've been able to get my 10,000 steps in almost everyday this week.

Enjoy your Sunday!

Morning all
Well we got some boards down in the loft- that took all afternoon LOL.
Pete reckoned on a couple of hours- I said double that and and add 10% LOL...wasn't far out.

Still raining here today, managed a walk yesterday between showers but don't think I'll have as much luck today and I was hoping to finish up in the garden. Weather looks good for Tuesday apparently so looking forward to some sun.

Have a great Sunday all, keep active, sleep better.

Hi all.
27 here this morning and it never went above 42. Got in a long walk, though.
Notice how many of our regular team members have dropped off? Huh.

Joy glad you enjoyed the music and got your album done. I've not looked at our albums since we moved! They're somewhere in the spare bedroom right now under a pile of other boxes.
MN Just think why you started and how far you've come!
Cat not surprised you're tired, that was one busy day!!

Weather is just awful here and I'm twiddling my thumbs. I'll find something to do after brekkie, might try and get Pete interested in doing some work in the loft- we've yet to decide on the flooring up there!

Got in a bit of a walk after lunch.
I spent three hours cleaning, cooking, peeling, making vinegar solution, and canning 7 1/2 qts beets.
A friend wanted some and was given two bags of them. I cleaned out my pantry of them and gave those to her so I could do these at my leisure. Wish I hadn't as these are golden beets and I don't like them as much. Oh well.
I am tired now.

Good Morning All,
Beautiful sunny morning here; but cold (19). Will walk this afternoon when it's a little warmer.
Jazz was great last night! Glad we got out--really have to push myself to go out these cold dark nights.
Slept really well for the first time since the time change. Part of that is Xena is much better and not up on the bed at night. She's playing in a sunny patch right now; has just discovered her shadow.
Album is done and I am pleased. I am going to make a vinyl cover to protect it; that's today's project.
Patti, So glad the car is fixed. We've become so dependent on them and it's such a stress-er when they are not dependable.
Cat, I really admire the time you take to do the prep to have healthy fresh food readily available. It's a sure way to avoid slipping into convenience foods on a busy day.


All is well here. Stay warm everyone!

Joy how was the concert?
Lynette Happy Birthday wishes for your BF
MN I confess once evening comes these cold nights I don't want to venture out either.
Cat great idea for lemons.

Very blustery here today, too much so for a walk on the front, I think a storm is brewing.
Have to venture out for food shop but otherwise I'm keeping in the warm. Hitting the weights after brekkie!

Greetings all.
Busy morning in the kitchen cleaning and dealing with produce purchases.
I also shredded in my food processor eight large lemons after cutting and seeding them. What a pain, but there is so much nutrition in the skins and pulp that I have decided it's worth the pain. I put this in ice cube trays and freeze them then transfer to a baggie to take from weekly then thaw and use in my nightly salads.
Tomorrow is beet day. A friend wanted me to pickle her some beets that were given to her.
A beautiful and cool day here but one that is great for walking.

Still lots of ice and snow and cold/wind. More like December than November! Will keep moving, but will be moving much more slowly! Got up and did a SP video this morning before work. Probably will go to pickleball tonight, but it's hard getting bundled up and going out after supper in the winter, so might do a Leslie Sansone video instead. What I'd really like to do is just snuggle with a book, but need to get that cardio in, or will pay for it later!

Morning Guys,
Joy I've got several cards to go abroad so it made sense to get those done and the rest will follow. As it was I did my "winter cleaning" all day yesterday..............great workout emoticon I'm saving the cards for when there's nothing on TV in the evening or if it's raining. If we had a few flakes of snow in London, everything came to a grinding halt- so glad I'm out of there!. Your garden must be ready for winter by now??
We had a leaflet from our council saying that we could/should clear paths for neighbours if needed and we would not be lending ourselves to litigation should someone slip- such is the blame culture it was thought that if you were not thorough enough you could be held to blame is someone slipped over!
Patti did your car pass muster?
Lynette I tried searching MIKE MIKE MIKE on You Tube and came up with a Hump Day advert........loved it, not seen it here emoticon
Marilyn learning new skills WTG- I am useless with technical stuff!
Cat sorry about the bowling!

A walk today and seeing Vicki this afternoon

A line in a Robbie Williams song I try to live by.....
"I know I'm going to die so my revenge is living well, Oh Lord...make me pure....but not yet!"
and fav quotes
"You only live once...but if you live it right, once is enough"
"Fall down 7 times...stand up 8"
